Telling Tales: A new scrapbooking class

***Button now working!!!!***

Telling tales is a brand new scrapbooking class all about telling stories and sharing memories.  Through a series of prompts and audio recordings, we’ll be looking at how we convey our stories through our journaling, pictures and design.  I believe that capturing our memories is one of the most fundamental aspects of scrapbooking and that the way we do this is personal and unique to each of us.  Telling Tales explores the different ways we can communicate our stories while doing what we love: scrapbooking!

Every scrapbooker has their own way of sharing their memories and Telling Tales will show you how to make the most of your stories in your own style.  Whether you are more comfortable with photographs, words or design; whether you prefer long wordy rambles or something that’s concise, heartfelt and to the point, Telling Tales will help you to make sure the memories you record come to life on your pages.  

You can scrap along with Telling Tales at your own pace whenever you feel like it. There's no pressure to 'keep up' and you can respond to the prompts in your own way.  You might choose to scrapbook, art journal, go digi, write, take photographs or simply draw inspiration.  You'll have permanent access to the material so you can use the ideas whenever and however you like. 

What's included in the class?
12 scrapbooking prompts featuring exclusive scrapbook layouts which all tell stories in different ways*

8 journalling prompts with different writing suggestions*
*4 audio recordings discussing storytelling*
*4 photography prompts to help you tell stories through pictures*
Permanent access to all class materials*
 *A dedicated Pinterest board to display participants’ work and projects*
  *A private forum to discuss the prompts, share links to your work, get feedback and be creative!*
The class will run for 4 weeks from Monday 28th January and each week, you will receive 3 scrapbooking prompts, 2 journaling prompts, 1 photography prompt and an audio recording.  These will all be emailed to you in pdf format (and as an mp3 file for the audio), landing right in your inbox each day!

What does it cost?
Permanent access to the class Telling Tales and all its contents costs just £6. Every penny goes to charity to support my fundraising for GirlGuiding UK. (Click here to read a little more about my fundraising).

You can pay securely through PayPal by credit or debit card - simply enter the email address you would like the prompts sent to, and click the 'Buy Now' button below!

So why not treat yourself or a friend this Christmas? Then there's something to look forward to once the festive season is over and we're facing a cold, wet, dark January!

What next?
Once you've paid via the PayPal website, I'll be in touch by email - usually within the next 24 hours - to confirm payment and class membership. The class will officially begin on Monday 28th January but I'll be in touch a couple of weeks before then with a few ideas to get you started!

P.S. If you're interested, it would be lovely if you could give Telling Tales a shout out on your blog. In fundraising, as in life, every little helps :D


  1. Sounds fabby, my dear, and I interrupt my self-imposed blog amnesty to leave this comment to tell you so :) I have tweeted a link (I've tried to, anyway, and I'm kinda hoping it actually works....)

    One Q: Will there be transcripts of the audio files please? Still having trouble with podcasts, videos and audio on my 'puter :(

    1. Oooh, thank you! And while I can't promise a complete transcript, I can summarise the contents of the recordings if that would help.

    2. Excellent, thank you muchly :) And I've just bought in, yay!

  2. It won't let me buy it! I'll try again later to see if it's my laptop that is the issue.
